BETWEEN YOU AND US . . . 

Frankly, you cannot expect anyone to revise or criticise YOUR literary work 
efficiently and confidently unless they are capable of selling their OWN literary 
work to well-known editors and publishers. 

W. and L. TOWNSEND, who revise all the work submitted to the AUTHORS' 
AID SERVICE, have their own books published under the imprint of some of the 
best-known publishers in Europe and America, viz. Messrs. George Allen & Unwin, 
Ltd., Crosby Lockwood, Ltd., E. & F. Spon, Ltd., all of London; The Macmillan Co. 
of New York; The House of Bonnier, of Sweden, etc., etc. 

Reviewers say of W. and L. TOWNSEND'S recent technical book: "Chapter 7 
in this book is worth the whole price paid for this volume. 1 ' "A remarkably handy 
and clever book." "A product of specialised experience. Clear and direct." "Sound 
and logical." 'The language used is virile, concise and straight to the point." 

Collaborated short stories and articles have appeared in so many British news- 
papers and magazines that it would need a page or two to list them. In the field of 
children's literature, W. and L. Townsend have written, over the last 30 years, stories 
catering for the tiny tots up to the 14-16-year-age group. 

Whatever your literary need may be, authors at home and overseas can be assured 
by W. and L. TOWNSEND of the same care and flair for successful writing where 
their own manuscripts are concerned.

THEORY . . . 

. . . there must be. But it must be practical theory and by that we mean down-to-earth 
stuff not head-in-the-air writings by folk (please forgive us) who have sold next to 
no work of their own and who then proceed to tell others how to sell. 

The theory that accompanies every K.K. Course is contained in textbooks and has 
been written, every word of it, by writers who live because they can write. These 
books (details are given below) will be of constant help to you long after any meagre 
pamphleted theory has fallen to pieces or has been mislaid. 

A GUIDE TO FICTION-WRITING (Kobold Knight) has been reprinted eight 
times, translated and transposed into Braille. PLOT DIGEST (Kobold Knight) is in 
its 12th Edition now. It is a comprehensive study of all the known methods of 
Plotting and includes hundreds of key plots. A recent purchaser tells us that he 
finds it too stimulating in bed o' nights but just what the Doctor ordered when 
Inspiration flags. PLOT DIGEST is priced at 30/- to non-students. 

A GUIDE TO ARTICLE-WRITING (G. J. Matson) has been reprinted seven 
times and is the best theory procurable by the student interested in Journalism. 

W.N.G., the K.K. Director of Studies, wrote WRITING FOR RADIO specially 
for the use of our Radio students. 

Elsewhere in this Year Book you will find something about how we set about our 
fascinating job of training writers. The partners are KOBOLD KNIGHT and Lt.-Col.

FREE OFFER 

to 

New Writers 



Hundreds of editors require articles and short stories. 
Most of these articles and stories are written by outside 
contributors living in all parts of the country. 

You need not be a genius to succeed in this fascinating 
and profitable field but you must know how to write 
in the way that appeals to editors. If you have literary 
ability, the postal courses conducted by the Regent 
Institute offer you thoroughly practical training. 

TRY THIS FREE TEST. Send a specimen article or 
short story for criticism, and enclose a stamped envelope 
for its return. The MS. will be carefully read and 
candidly criticised. When it is mentioned that many 
prospective students are rejected, the value of this 
privilege of getting a frank, expert opinion needs no 
emphasis. 

Earning While Learning 

Whether you submit a specimen MS. or not, write to 
the Institute for a free copy of an interesting booklet 
describing the openings in the literary market, and the 
special advantages of postal training which has enabled 
so many new writers to earn while learning, scores of 
students having won almost immediate success. 

Post the coupon or send a simple request for the 
booklet, addressed to The Regent Institute (Dept. 
35C), Regent House, Palace Gate, London, W.8. 



Why is it that so many new 
writers seek the aid of the 
Regent Institute to enable 
them to exploit fully the 
varied opportunities offered 
by spare-time journalism? 
There are four principal 
reasons : 

(1) Because of the remarkable 
results secured by the Institute's 
postal courses In journalism and 
short story writing. Students 
have disposed of their work to 
over 1,450 newspapers and perio- 
dicals. Hundreds of pupils have 
sold articles and short stories 
during tuition. 

(2) Because the instructional 
staff consists of successful authors 
and journalists whose combined 
experience enables them to meet 
the requirements of every class 
of student. Not only have the 
instructors had wide experience 
of free-lancing, but several have 
served on the staffs of well-known 
newspapers and periodicals. 

(3) Because the personal note 
that characterises the instruction 
is a living thing a vital, inspiring 
method that draws the best out 
of the student and shows him 
how to make the most of his 
individual talent. 

(4) Because the Institute's 
courses embody original features 
which, though they have been 
imitated, have never been 
equalled.

CRITICISM 



WITH A DIFFERENCE! 

For two decades the CRITICISM SERVICE conducted by 
THE AUTHORS' AID SERVICE has pursued its work of analysing, 
with keen sympathy for the writers' aims, all types of manuscripts 
which had not found favour before they came into our office. We 
have demonstrated how, with correct treatment, such manuscripts 
can be made to find favour. For their skill and keen interest, our 
Critics have earned and received the gratitude of countless 
authors and writers, including some of our best-known novelists 
and broadcasters. 

Literary Criticism, as we see it, must do very much more than 
point out even though it does so with unerring clarity and skill 
all the faults a manuscript possesses. It is just as vitally important 
to know the merits in a manuscript as the faults. 

Very definitely YOU want to know how to correct your literary 
faults or weaknesses, and how to present your work with that 
magic appeal which is the hallmark of good writing. You want to 
feel, too, that the Critic who is dealing with your work has a 
sympathetic interest and understanding of the labour and industry 
you have translated into your writing. It is not enough to be told 
bluntly where your work fails: you must know WHY, and HOW 
to remedy the faults. 

The Criticism Service of THE AUTHORS' AID SERVICE 
embodies all these important factors in its constructive reports. 
Faults are pin-pointed with penetrating intuition and equal stress 
is given to literary merit. 

Criticism, with that EXTRA SERVICE you need, is given on 
all types of script : NOVELS, PLAYS, VERSE, SCENARIOS, 
TEXT-BOOKS, SHORT STORIES, ARTICLES, B.B.C. 
FEATURES, etc. Fees are moderate considering the qualifications 
of the AUTHORS' AID SERVICE Critics. All fees are by quota- 
tion. Without any obligation you are invited to send your MSS. 
for quotation. 

WE CAN ALSO HELP YOU IN OTHER WAYS 

We will revise your work if it is below standard, or if you are 
just beginning to find your literary feet. We will help you to finish 
that novel which is proving difficult in its final stages. We will 
help you to PLOT your new novel or your short stories. We will 
help you with markets. WHATEVER YOUR PROBLEM, write 
to us in confidence. Especial welcome is extended to Overseas 
and American writers.

Conversation Piece . . . 

for New Writers 



New Writer: This is the first chance 
I've had to talk to a Fiction Editor. Vd 
like straight answers to . . . 

Editor: The usual questions. All right 
fire away. 

New Writer : / think /' ve got it in me 
to write fiction. Vd have a go if I could 
be convinced that you re really looking 
for new writers. 

Editor: But we are looking always. 
There just aren't enough good story- 
tellers to go round. 

New Writer: / don't believe it. You 
must receive hundreds of MSS. every 
day. 

Editor: We do. Most of them are 
hopeless. Some show promise. But they 
nearly all lack the essential technique. 

New Writer: What do you mean by 
essential technique? 

Editor: I can't very well explain 
technique in a sentence. Shall we say 
it's the reason why we have to import 
American stories when we'd rather 
encourage our own writers? 

New Writer: What have the Americans 
got that so many British writers lack? 



Editor: Technique. Their plots are no 
better than the hundreds of ideas people 
like you send every day. But they know 
how to present them deftly and con- 
vincingly. 

New Writer: Could I acquire this 
technique? 

Editor: Yes; by trial and error 
which takes years or by getting skilled 
instruction. 

New Writer: You mean a correspon- 
dence course? 

Editor: Not just any correspondence 
course. You need to be taught by 
people who know their job. 

New Writer: Can you recommend a 
reliable modern organisation with a 
pro ved record of success? 

Editor: My advice to you is to write 
to the British Tutorial Institute for a 
copy of their handbook Saleable 
Writing. It's not at all like the usual 
prospectus and there's a lot of "inside 
information" in it that will probably 
surprise you. To start with, it tells you 
that . . . Oh, hang it, get a copy for 
yourself!

Personal Tuition 



CECIL HUNT 

Owing to acute eye trouble, Mr. Cecil Hunt has been 
compelled to give up active business. 

He is, however, able to take a limited number of pupils 
for personal tuition in 

Journalism 

Short Story Writing 

and Authorship 

Mr. Hunt does not believe in set lessons nor stereotyped 
tuition. The work is entirely personal and individual, 
adjusted to the revealed requirements of each pupil and 
designed to develop his or her particular potentialities 
and correct revealed faults. 

Pupils have the advantage of drawing upon their tutor's 
vast experience of all aspects of journalism, authorship and 
publishing. 

Mr. Hunt has written 45 books and was formerly 
Literary Editor of the "Daily Mail," and Fiction Editor of 
the "Daily Mail" and "Evening News." His books on 
journalism and writing are standard works. The essence 
of his training is

MAKE WRITING PAY 

FOR the past thirty years the Premier School of Journalism has been 
teaching writers the technique of Press cbntribution and showing 
them how to "make writing pay." Pupils drawn from every walk of life, 
many without any previous experience whatever, have been enabled to 
make a profitable hobby or a full-time career of writing as a result of 
tuition. 

Moreover, it has been shown that success is not dependent upon out- 
standing ability, but may be won by any man or woman who can write 
plain English and understand and cater for the interests of ordinary 
people. The reading public is not made up of a mass of minds of exactly 
the same calibre; taste in reading is as varied as taste in every other 
direction, and calls for writers of all types. There is plenty of room for the 
writer of modest ability as well as the genius. 

It is the clear understanding of this fact and the consistent stressing of 
it in tuition that accounts for much of the spectacular success of Premier 
School students. 

CRITICISM 

The function of the critic pure and the critic-plus-teacher differs 
considerably. The first need give only a dispassionate assessment and leave 
it at that. The second, however, hj 
Premier School tuition this is fupy ] 
in hand is essential, but with ffanl 
in the shape of constructive suggestion's "for jixpujdjns ^nd, developing 
faulty material until it takes more saleable* ^hapc. This is why many 
pupils who began with only a modest talent have developed into pro* - 
minently successful writers. 

The slogan of the Premier School of Journalism embodies the spirit 
of its teaching: 

"OUR CHIEF WANT IN LIFE IS SOMEONE WHO SHALL MAKE; 
US DO WHAT WE..CAN. THIS IS THE SEI^VICE^OF A FRIEND." 

|* -(Emerson) 

The teaching is practical and thorough. Special methods of dealing 
with those bugbears of the write^r plot anc^irt^gcij^ding are features 
of the teaching, and throughout pupils are^s&tecrwith friendly advice 
and sound constructive criticism.,, . - 

The School's teaching has produced remarkable results. Many pupils, 
with no previous experience, have earned material sums during tuition, 
in their spare time 150 has been reported on several occasions. Others 
have been enabled to adopt writing as a profession and have earned 
incomes of from 800 to 2,000 a year. 

Full details of the School 9 s Courses in STORY WRITING, ARTICLE 
WRITING, VERSE WRITING, WRITING FOR CHILDREN, and 
PLAIN ENGLISH will be sent on application.

FORTY-SECOND YEAR 
OF NEW ISSUE 




ADAM AND CHARLES BLACK 
4, 5 & 6 SOHO SQUARE LONDON 



PREFACE 

THE first issues of a considerable number of new journals have appeared in 
the past year, and a number of new publishers have announced their "first 
lists." In the same period a not inconsiderable number of journals have 
published their last numbers, and several publishers have found themselves 
unable to meet their obligations and ceased business. The pages of the 1949 
Writers' and Artists' Year Book reflect these and many other changes that 
have taken place since the publication of the last edition. 

Both editing and publishing are trades requiring a high degree of skill, 
perception and application, but there is nothing to prevent anyone however 
unsuitable, unskilled or unscrupulous he may be, from trying his hand at 
either job, to the eventual dismay and disappointment of many writers and 
artists. The vast majority of publishers, journals, agents, etc., possess a high 
degree of business integrity, but "Vanity" publishers and unscrupulous 
agents still continue to exist. 

WARNING TO AUTHORS AND OTHERS 

Writers, artists, and others are urged to proceed with caution before sub- 
mitting work to a firm about whom they know little or nothing. A pre- 
cautionary step, which too few people take, is to send a preliminary letter. 
If a magazine or firm is overstocked, and many editors and publishers have 
enough work in cold storage for a long time ahead, they will usually say so. 
If no reply is received nothing is lost except a little time. When negotiating 
with such firms a similar caution should be observed. 

The advice we have offered in the Year Book for many years past is repeated 
now with special emphasis: 

Never pay for publication, whether it is for a book or a piece of 
music, or for setting a lyric to music. If work is worth publishing, 
sooner or later a publisher will recognise its merits and be prepared to 
publish it at his own expense 

RATflS 'OF' PAYMENT 

A special effort is made to obtain rates ot paymeTirOTrcrecrTOr contributiohs 
by journals and magazines. Certain journals of the highest standing and 
reputation are reluctant, for reasons that are understandable, to state a 
standard rate of payment, since the value of a contribution may be dependent 
not upon length but upon the standing of the writer or of the information 
he has to give. Many journals give a rate of payment indicating that it is a 



PREFACE 12 

minimum rate; others, in spite of efforts to extract the information from 
them, prefer to state "usual terms" or "by arrangement." Although the 
cfcst^ of living has risen considerably during the past years, in the majority 
of cases the payment offered by journals and magazines has failed to keep 
pace and indeed in some cases is lamentably small. Writers, artists and others 
are urged not to accept less than a fair price for their work, and, moreover, 
to ascertain exactly what rights they are being asked to dispose of when an 
offer is made. 

It must be recorded that in the past year, complaints have been received 
of the dilatoriness of a small number of journals in dealing with MSS. and 
in making payments for contributions accepted and published. The infor- 
mation in the entries for journals, etc., in the Year Book is supplied by the 
journal or firm concerned and while the publishers of the Year Book cannot 
hold themselves responsible for statements made, they will be glad to be 
informed of any cases where statements relating to requirements and rates 
of payment appear to be incorrect. 

Authors and others are strongly recommended to keep a careful record of 
all work sent out. A simple table for this purpose is suggested on page 325 
of the Year Book. 

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 

Once again we must record our grateful thanks to the publishers, editors 
of journals, literary agents, and others through whose friendly co-operation 
it is possible to keep the information in the Year Book reliable and up to date. 
A proof of each entry is submitted annually for correction, and it is gratifying 
that in almost every case proofs have been returned. The omission of a 
journal from the Year Book is not due to any editorial preference or partisan- 
ship but to the fact that it offers little or no scope for the free-lance writer or 
artist. Here we may add that we are always glad to consider the inclusion of 
new journals which have escaped our notice, and we welcome any corrections 
or suggestions for the further improvement of the Year Book. 

THE REPORT ON THE LAW OF LIBEL 

J. A. Crockett, author of An Outline of the Law of Libel (see page 298), 
writes: The recently published report by the Lord Chancellor's Committee 
on the Law of Libel criticised the present law particularly as to its tendency 
to be "too severe upon the defendant who is innocent of any intention to 
defame" and also as to its liability "to stifle discussion upon matters of 
public interest and concern." The principal recommendations affecting the 
author and journalist are: 

(i) In cases of unintentional libel the plaintiff's remedy should be restricted 
to requiring the defendant to publish an explanation and apology and when 
that has been done no damages should be recoverable. 

b* 



13 PREFACE 

(ii) A defendant should be entitled to succeed in a defence of justification 
if he proves that so substantial a portion of the defamatory allegations are 
true that any remaining allegations which have not been proved to be true 
do not add materially to the injury to the plaintiff 's reputation. The defence 
of fair comment should be broadened in the same way. 

(iii) The defence of qualified privilege should be extended by including 
monthly journals in the definition of "newspaper" and extending the category 
of reports entitled to such privilege to include the wide range of public bodies 
and quasijudicial tribunals which have now come into existence. 

THE ADVERTISEMENT SECTION 

While all reasonable care is taken in accepting advertisements for the 
Year Book, it should be noted that the Publishers cannot hold themselves 
responsible for the advertisers.

CAN SCIENCE 



r 



HELP 




Well, surely ... as Dr. Joad would 
say ... it depends on the science. 
There are two kinds of science: 
quantitative and qualitative. We 
have never claimed that fiction- 
writing has been reduced to an 
exact or quantitative science and 
we cannot imagine how decimals or set-squares could be applied to it. The 
Science of Fiction-writing is qualitative a science in the same category as, 
for example, Domestic Science, Eugenics, and Psychology. 

"Tht subject-matter of Lecture 1 is truly amazing, and no novice would credit that the devising of 
a plot, which before had seemed such an intricate process, could be reduced to such a simple scientific 
ormula." R. E. 

"This makes a total of 13 stories sold in 1945; money received from same, 81 18s. 3d. That is 
food, considering I had sold no fiction in 1944." R. G. F. 

"I sent the story to the GIRL'S OWN PAPER and got two surprises. It was accepted first time out 
for 6 6s. ... splendid payment for a 2000 word children's story. The second surprise was a most 
encouraging letter asking for as many more of the same type as I care to submit." (Later): "May 
I say how glad I am that the further girl's story sold first time out to G.O.P. There we ore then, 
all square on the course fees with a couple of guineas left over!" W. L. J. 
"I confess it was with the utmost scepticism that / sent my short story, 'He Went to Harley Street,' 
to CHAMBERS'S JOURNAL as you advised. It seemed to me that we were aiming rather high. 
/ am delighted to tell you that it has been accepted." Dr. E. G. 

"/ hove great pleasure in informing you that as a result of a careful study of Lectures 2 and 3 two 
chi/dstories / have written have been accepted by RADIO EIREANN for broadcasting." 8. J. 0. 
Please accept my warmest thanks for the cheque for 18 9s. 8d., received today in respect of 
your excellent sale of 'The Constant Heart' to BLACK WOOD'S MAGAZINE." D. M. 
"The editor of WOMAN'S ILLUSTRATED has offered me six guineas for 'Through Susan's Eyes' 
and says it is an excellent story. That is the fourth story I've sold since starting the course." 
(Later): "I was rather pleased to be asked by the editress of WOMAN'S COMPANION to write a 
series of six short stories about children for her paper." (Later); "I was very pleased to hear that 
I had sold a story to PSYCHOLOGY last week." Mrs. P. M. 

"Through my letterbox came a slim envelope . , . 'Dear Sir, we like your story 'Witch Child* 
very much and will be glad to offer you ten guineas for it for use in ARGOSY.' " K. C. S. 
"Three more acceptances. This makes 14 10s. in eleven weeks." (Later): "Last month's receipts 
alone amounted to 40 15s. This means that after completing six lessons with you I have earned 
70." J. W. 

"The System is better than any other / have ever heard of, 
especially the method of Stages, which gives one the confidence 
of knowing what to do, and how to do it. There is something to 
guide one, something tangible for one to hold on to." O. W. C,

Special Fees

those whose incomes have not advanced with the rising cost of living. 
Students are now accepted at reduced fees, and there is no curtailment 
of any kind. These reduced fees apply to: 

1. The Full Course in Journalism for those adopting news- 

paper work as a career. 

2. The Free-Lance Course. 

3. The Short Story Course. 

4. The Poetry Course.

Writing is a form of expression which brings numerous rewards. 
Monetary return is one, and to many people the most important of 
them, but in addition there is the very important consideration that the 
study of article or story writing develops the mind, and no one in these 
days can neglect the cultural side of life. 

Free advice is given to all who are considering a Course and the Informative book 
"Writing for the Press" will be sent, free, to all enquiries addressed to:

you will thus learn far more about the technique of writing than is 
possible under any other method.

PRACTICE . . . 

. . . Elsewhere in this Year Book we give details of the theoretical part of our service 
for writers. Here we wish to talk about practicalities. 

Allow us, then, to give you some facts about what we have done for other writers 
(some of them "big shots" now), let us tell you something about what we can do for 
you. Above all, let us tell you what we cannot do. If you have no aptitude at all for 
the craft of writing then we can do nothing and we plainly tell you so. But if you 
have "something of the gift," however small and undeveloped your latent talent 
may be now, much is possible with hard work on your part and upon ours. 

Which brings us to some extracts from recent letters, all of them representative of 
the dozens that come in every week. 

J. M. S. writes: "Since my last letter I have sold every word that has come off my 
typewriter. ... I am humbly grateful." 

A very prominent London Literary Agent has this to say about a student intro- 
duced to him. . . . "Mrs. X's work is selling well. I think she is a writer of considerable 
promise and it reflects great credit on you." V 

"Thank you for your splendid letter, criticism, etc., I did not expect so much, I 
can tell you. It was meaty !" (R. G. C.) 

"I can't say all the things I would like to say without sounding like one of your 
advertisements so I'll confine myself to saying that it's been enormous fun. More 
practically, I've made over 100." (N. D.) 

"Every story I sent you, with one exception, has since sold. Indeed the Course had 
more than paid for itself by the fourth lesson." (T. J. D.) 

"Excellent news, two more acceptances . . . both in markets you considered the 
best bet out of several you suggested." (R. A. B.) 

"I know that my success was due entirely to your tuition. I started from scratch 
but with complete confidence in my tutors, and I think it says a good deal for the 
soundness of your Course that you have brought my work up to printable standard 
in five lessons. " (E . J .) 

Representative only, as we say. And we do not print some of the more extra- 
ordinary ones : many of them refer to very private circumstances and must be held 
inviolate. 

There are K.K. Courses in Short Story, Article and Radio Writing and the 
tuition is strictly individual, fully collaborative and above all enthusiastic. The fees 
are moderate, as witness F. L. B. who writes: "I was greatly surprised, not to say 
delighted, by the K.K. terms. Don't advertise yourselves as expensive types again!" 
(We were not aware that we ever had, but let it pass!) 

Please write us for full particulars. There is, of course, no obligation whatsoever. 
If you would like an opinion upon some work of yours, then send us a short MS. 
with a stamped addressed envelope for its return. Really short if you please, and be 
prepared for utter frankness; we do not pull our punches and have no wish to waste 
either your time or our own. 

The partners are KOBOLD KNIGHT and Lt.-Col. W. N. GRIFFITHS (who 
directs the studies). Between them they have contributed, and contribute now, to 
something like one hundred periodicals here and overseas, written published novels 
(as opposed to those novels that never reach a reader!), provided some of the best 
technical books available, had work broadcast in three continents.

The Poetry Lovers' Fellowship (President: Walter de la Mare) announces in its "Poetry and Science" 
Series, a new volume, 

POETIC TECHNIQUE 

Stream and Structure in English Poetry [By OLIVER C. DE C. ELLIS] 

The Stresses of Returning Rhythms must be the sole foundations of a genuine English prosody. 
This musical science involves some recollection, much variation and periodic return. "Nature's" 
habit is to couple everything in Two-time: out and back. Accurate metronomic One-time is a 
man-made repetition and does not occur in animate "Nature." 

Rocking-Time in song is popular throughout life. Analysis of examples. Personal rhythms. Com- 
munally accepted rhythms The agreed rhythms of English speech. Vogue of mis-stressing on the 
Wireless a grave threat to the skeletal structure of our language. Children's basic tune in the multi- 
plication tables. 

Marching-Time, Four-Time, is Two-Time modulated upon a Two-Time . Four gives solidity and 
stability. Four fours, 16, form a tune. Four fours of triplets give us a waltz. Nurse's 3-liIt has 
always 2-way movement. Child's 3-movement ball-game soon adds a rest and lapses into 4. Man 
creates 3-time as a sophistication, foreign to "Nature." 

Stresses in the Silence. Similarly, into his basic 16 tune-form, he introduces as many as 6 pauses. 
The 8 : 8, 8 : 7, 8 : 6, 8 : 5, 8 : 4, 8 : 3, 8 : 2, are all 8 : 8 with separate basic tunes (which of course 
the sense-rhythm must dominate or supplant). When the normal pre-Marlowe "fourteener" was 
superseded by the normal 10 (5 spoken stresses + 3 beats in the silence) I, 2, 3, 4, V, , , 
the line contained its own return and became independent of the stanzaic rhythm of pattern. 
Collins' unrhymed 5, 5, 3, 3, and Longfellow's unrhymsd hexameters and tetrameters are based 
also on the satisfaction of 4. 

Complicated Patterns must also satisfy 4. Sonnets (8 : 6 in lines), Spenserians, etc., inventively 
employ and manipulate the discovered rhythms of "Nature." Analysis of patterns devised by 
various poets. The freedom of the Ode. Full explanation of scansion by stresses. 
The Stream. The pattern may be static, but the poetry is dynamic. Progress through a poem. The 
poet's world. The searchlight of directed attention illustrated from the worlds of numerous poets. 

The Composition of English Poetry [By GEOFFREY JOHNSON] 

Indispensable rudiments. Humility and Industry. Fundamental spade-work. English Grammar. 
Bible as literature. Shakespeare. Anthologies (Palgrave, O.B.E.V., etc.). Major poets studied 
separately. Standards and Touchstones. English Composition. Examples for guidance and 
avoidance. Inversion. Originality and Showiness. Rhyme not a fetter but a help. Rhymes that are 
abominable. Successful mingling of end-stop and overflow. Rhymeless verse. So-called free verse. 
Rhythm. Placing of Pause. Spontaneous patterning of consonants and sequences of vowels. 
Twenty-two admonitions as guiding generalisations. 

A study of the coming of inspiration. Bogus stimulation. Receptiveness. Signs of genuine afflatus. 
Germ of a poem intuitive and emotional. Composition as a necessary catharsis. Inflow of lines 
into the mind. Distinction between the aesthetic longing to create and the genuine creative drive. 
Sincerity not enough. Self-cajolement out of barren moods. Playing with words and phrases. 
Supremacy of the authentic vision. 

Five rules of self-criticism. Freshness of vision. Re-clothing the commonplace with wonder. 
Common illusions about poetic character. Present debasement of critical standards. Intrusion of 
cant, jargon, argot, and the gross. Parrot-cry of Escapism. Sterility of mere repetitive imitation. 
Poems about poems or literary characters, cocoons spun round ghosts. Self-repetition in theme. 
Memorableness and quotability. 

Symbolisms private and universal. Balance of imagination and judgement, of the emotional and 
the rational. The fire and the file. Value of after-thoughts. Discipline and over-writing. 

The Rendering of English Verse [By CHRISTABEL BURNISTON] 

INTRODUCTION. The essentials: sensibility, sincerity, intelligence. The poet's own oral impotence' 

Precision of auditory images. 

TECHNIQUE. Voice: Standards; pitfalls. Articulation'. Glottal stops and shocks; intruded R; omitted 
R; neutral vowel; over-carefulness. Local Accent and Standard English: Value of each in 
proper place; acceptability; intelligibility; vitality. 

AESTHETIC RESPONSE. Rhythm: Insistent Rhythm. Dancing Rhythm. Domination of Sense-Rhythm. 
With graphs illustrating scansion of e.g. "Sprung" Rhythm. 
Cadence: Musical patterns of speech; surrealistic and natural effects; repeti- 
tion, balance, and parallelism of cadences. 
Onomatopoeia: The obvious and the subtle; use and abuse. 
CHORAL SPEAKING. Choice of material. Study of material. Work and responsibility of conductor. 

Grouping of voices. Orchestration. Opportunities and limitations. 

THE LYRIC. Submission to the poet's mood. Range from simple carol, wholly subject to verse- 
rhythm, to the profound ode, wholly subject to sense-rhythm. Table, showing broad 
gamut narrowing to a more compact range as menjal depth increases. Proper printing. 
DRAMATIC VERSE. Fusion of actor's personality with the assumed character. How spontaneity is to 
be achieved. Variety of pace. Use of pause. Reading between the lines. Gesture 
and facial expression. Types of emphasis. Emphasis achieved by contrast. Special 
difficulties of dramatic verse: extremes of treatment and other pitfalls; danger of 
trick-production assuming greater importance than nobility of language.

SOCIETY OF NEW AUTHORS 



authors are invited to submit 
MSS. short stories, features, and 
poetry for the coming issue of SONA, 
a literary periodical designed to bring to 
the public's notice new names, new 
talent. 

FOR those who are not yet estab- 
lished, for those who are just beginning 
a literary life, SONA offers an intro- 
duction to print. Its policy is simple: to 
encourage, perhaps inspire, the new 



author to express himself at a time of 
condensed and closed markets. Known 
names are unwanted: SONA is for the 
newcomer to literary endeavour. 



, a "members only" journal, is 
the magazine of the Society of New 
Authors membership of which costs a 
guinea a year and carries with it free 
criticism of work selected. For full 
details of the Society which can help 
you to fame, write to the

THE CROSS HILLS 

TYPEWRITING & LITERARY BUREAU 

Complete Service: 
TYPING CRITICISM REVISION MARKETS 

Publishers, Editors, Novelists and Journalists express their unqualified appreciation 
of our Service. 

Mr. Michael Hervey has been described as one of the most dynamic and prolific 
writers of our time. The author of 1,000 short stories and 20 successful plays, his novels 
alone have sold over 4,000,000 copies. The Bureau has revised and polished scores of 
Mr. Hervey's short stones, and he writes of our Service: 

"I have tried a great number of Agencies in my time, but I have yet to find one 
that compares with yours in any way. The service your Bureau offers can only be 
described as perfect. I shall continue to send my work to you as long as my type- 
writer holds out." Michael Hervey, Pnttlewell, Essex. 

Mr. Ronald Horton is the author of more than one hundred short stones and a regular 
contributor to the Sunday Chronicle and Messrs. Newspaper Features, Ltd. He sent a 
rejected story to the Bureau for revision. In less than a week he reported : 

"The story you revised, HERBERT EXERTS HIMSELF, has been taken by 
Weekly Telegraph by return of post. I want to say without any suspicion of 
'soft-soaping' that your revision is the best I have ever seen." Ronald Horton, 
Pinxton, Nottingham. 

The Editor of a well-known gardening weekly writes: 

"The revision of my article amazed me. I have been an Editor for two years and 
Assistant Editor for five, and I know what I am talking about. Believe me, I 
legard your work as being of the very highest standard." G. B., Salop. 

The Bureau is equally successful with beginners. In 1948, their 
articles and short stories appeared in no less than 200 leading 
British magazines. 

Mr. Harry Main was over sixty when he took up writing. On November 3rd, 1948, he 
reported: "The three stories you have revised for me have all been accepted. The 
latest, LOST IN THE STRATOSPHERE, has been included in Swan's Scramble 
Annual for 1949." //. Main, Thrussington, Leicester. 

Mr. L. Rothera reported on October 30th: "Of the 12 articles revised for me since 
July, this year, seven sold immediately and I still await decisions regarding the other 
five. My articles have appeared in Answers, Home Review, Householder, Sporting 
Investor, Home Magazine, Modern Mystic and Scribe. I find yourrcvision indispensable. 
It is the last word in efficiency." L. Rothera, Leeds. 

D. E. Watlington, has been even more successful. He writes: 

"You have revised over 40 articles for me, and every one has been accepted. The 
payment has been excellent. In one instance I received seven guineas for an 
article of one thousand words, and two to four guineas for most of the others. 
Better still, Editors are asking me for articles. Needless to say, the credit is due to 
you." 

Original testimonials sent on application. 
Typing, 1/5 1,000 words. Criticism, 2/6 1,000 words.

SIR CEDRIC HARDWICKE writes: 

I accept the terms for my Memoirs "Let's Pretend," and 
considering that this is my first book, the advance royalty you 
have obtained is most satisfactory. 

Thank you for 4 45. od. for my brief sketch, "The Fourth 
Estate," which works out at half-a-guinea per 100 words. Many 
of us have to be content with half-a-guinea per thousand! This 
little sketch had already been turned down in editorial quarters 
where I submitted it. / feared it was a dead loss. 

(Signed) NEIL GOW. 

The chief contributory factor to the acceptance of "The Clueless 
Trail" is, without question, the meticulous care you took in 
reading a typescript of 116,000 words by one who had no previous 
experience in novel writing, and your insistence on the story 
being cut down to reasonable commercial length. Besides this you 
lightened my task by pointing out where the condensations 
could be made to the best advantage. It is authoritative and 
"straight from the shoulder" methods like yours that avoid much 
disappointment and waste of time both to authors and publishers.

OVERSEAS NEWSPAPERS 

MANY excellent newspapers are published in the larger towns throughout the 
Empire. To give a full list, which could never be kept up to date, of many hundreds 
of papers would be impossible within the confines of this year book, and quite 
useless to a would-be contributor. Many of the more important papers have a 
London office. It is usual for MSS. from free-lance writers to be submitted to the 
editorial office overseas. 

Most of the big newspapers depend for news mainly on their own staffs. The 
most important papers have permanent representatives who keep them supplied, 
not only with news of purely Dominion and Colonial interest, but with a weekly 
summary of English news and articles on events of special importance. 

The Overseas market for stories and articles is small. For the most part news- 
papers and dailies buy their stories, as the smaller papers buy their general articles, 
through one or other of the well-known syndicates. Magazines published overseas 
often prefer their fiction to have a local setting. 

If disappointment is to be avoided, would-be contributors should beware of 
small magazines of an ephemeral nature. This advice applies particularly to the 
lesser periodicals of India and Pakistan. 

A preliminary letter is advisable, and acquaintance with the magazine to which 
it is desired to send contributions is essential. 

In addition to journals which offer opportunities to freelance writers, the principal 
newspapers are also included.

AMERICAN JOURNALS AND MAGAZINES 

Every effort is made to verify each paper in this list, but this year (1949) many 
American editors have failed to return the revised proofs and duplicates sent to 
them. In dealing with minor papers, contributors are advised to communicate 
by letter, and await reply, before posting MSS. 

NOTE. MSS. (with or without illustrations) and their stamped return envelopes, 
or international postage coupons, should not be sent separately, but with the 
covering letter. It is necessary, when selling to a U.S.A. periodical, to be clear 
what rights are being sold, for certain Editors like to purchase MSS. outright, 
thus securing world copyright. MSS. should not be sent to the London office 
of any U.S.A. publication. All MSS. should be registered. 

Attention should also be given to the difficulties of obtaining simultaneous 
issue to secure copyright, especially as regards book publication. 

Contributors, who do not retain a specific market in the U.S.A., are recom- 
mended to make a careful study of those publications that are preponderantly 
American in their appeal. In fact each magazine should be studied before 
MSS. are submitted. 

In certain top-ranking American magazines collaboration between author and 
editor is becoming more and more extensive. The editor likes to have for his con- 
sideration a full preliminary synopsis, which should be about 500 words in length. 
The synopsis should indicate the scope and plan of the article, its title and length, 
and how it will be handled (i.e. whether "factual, informatory" or "founded on 
special information"). This note is based on information brought back by Miss 
Phyllis Bentley from a recent visit to America. "Whether British writers," she says, 
"will wish to follow this method or not I do not know, but it seems worth while 
bringing it to their notice and urging them to try it. It entails some extra trouble, 
but on the other hand it prevents the waste of writing unacceptable work 
unacceptable, too, perhaps only because of some accidental coincidence of topics, 
some omission of desired detail, or some stress of an already too familiar angle."

PUBLISHERS 
BRITISH AND IRISH PUBLISHERS 

Authors arc strongly advised not to pay for the publication of their work. If a 
MS. is worth publishing, a reputable publisher will undertake its publication at his 
own expense. In this connection attention is calJed to the article on Publishers 
Agreements on page 300, and to Sir Stanley Unwin's article on p. 301. 

Care should be taken to select a suitable publisher. Before submitting a MS. 
make certain that the firm you have in mind does in fact publish other books of a 
similar nature. Some publishers, for instance, have no fiction in their list, others 
publish only fiction. In most cases in the list below publishers have indicated the 
subjects in which they are interested. 

At the present time most publishers' plans are made for a long time ahead, and 
it is advisable to send a preliminary letter before submitting a MS. 

Publishers are asked to send in notes of the kind of MSS. they chiefly desire, so 
that this list may be made increasingly useful to authors.

AGENTS 
LITERARY AGENTS 

MANY literary agents have a well-deserved reputation for their integrity in dealing 
with authors and publishers. There have been in the past, however, many dis- 
creditable and unsatisfactory agents, and some of the leading agents are concerned 
to form an association of literary agents to uphold the standard of professional 
conduct. Until such an association is formed, all writers needing the services of a 
literary agent are advised in their own interests to make preliminary enquiries and 
to ascertain terms of work before submitting MSS. Commission is never less than 
10 per cent for book-length MSS., and 15 per cent for shorter work and is some- 
times more where special services are offered.

"We writers of the P.E.N. want to serve humanity at large in the ways (perhaps 
the only ways) in which the written word and the makers thereof can serve 
humanity, by linking up country by country the love of literature and by helping 



236 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

to restore to a bleak and starved world a friendly atmosphere" (John Gals- 
worthy, 1932). "We of the P.E.N. are united upon this fundamental thing, 
we stand for faith in the freely-thinking, freely-speaking, free-writing mind. . . . 
Faced with the uproar and violence of contemporary affairs, the P.E.N. in its 
own fashion maintains the concept of an intellectual and aesthetic world 
republic; it asserts its faith in the ultimate triumph of the free brotherhood of 
mankind" (H. G. Weils, 1936).

PRIZES AND AWARDS 
LITERARY PRIZES AND AWARDS 

THIS list does not include the competitive prizes offered from time to time by 
publishers and periodicals. A more recent innovation, the award of bursaries by 
publishers and other bodies, is the subject of a separate article. The number of 
literary prizes in Great Britain is small compared with America, where there are 
scores of literary awards. 

THE JAMES TAIT BLACK MEMORIAL PRIZES 

Among the most important in this country are the James Tait Black Memorial 
Prizes. These prizes were inaugurated by the late Mrs. Black in memory of her 
husband, James Tait Black, a partner in the publishing house of A. & C. Black, Ltd. 
A sum, which some years ago totalled 12,430, was set aside to be used for providing 
two prizes of whatever income the fund should produce after paying expenses, 
including a fee to the judge, for (First) the best biography or literary work of that 
nature of each year, and (Second) the best novel of each year, the choice to be made 
by the Professor of Literature of Edinburgh University, or failing him, the Professor 
of Literature in the University of Glasgow. The terms of the Bequest, which was 
drawn up without consulting literary opinion, place the award in the hands of one 
man. No one man could hear of, much less read, all the good biographies of the 
year, together with all the good novels, in order to choose from among them the 
best. A committee of competent people is a necessity if a literary prize is to count 
for anything. As will be understood, the prizes are not competitive. The awards 
are generally made in the year following publication of the books selected. The 
1947 awards were made to Dr. C. E. Raven for his English Naturalists from Neckham 
to Ray and to Mr. L. P. Hartley for his novel Eustace and Hilda. 

THE SOMERSET MAUGHAM TRUST FUND 

The purpose of this annual award, which will be a sum of about 300, is to 
encourage our young writers to travel, to acquaint themselves with the manners 
and customs of foreign countries, and, by widening their own experience, to extend 
both the basis and the influence of contemporary English literature. It is Mr. 
Maugham's belief that, "if now and then a writer comes along who is so stimulated 
and strengthened by the expedience which this prize will put within his reach that 
he can produce works that will enrich the common literature of the world, the 
experiment will have been well worth making." Mr. Maugham has urged that, 
in the selection of prize-winners, originality and promise should be the touchstones: 
he does not wish the judges to "play for safety" in their choice. 

A candidate for the award must be a British subject by birth and ordinarily 
resident in the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland. He or she must, at the 
time of the award, be under thirty years of age, and must submit a published 
literary work in volume form in the English language, of which he or she is the 
sole author. The term "literary work" includes poetry, fiction, criticism, history 
and biography, belles lettres, or philosophy, but does not include a dramatic work. 
A candidate who wins an award must undertake to spend not less than three months 
outside Great Britain and Ireland, and to devote the prize to the expenses of this 
sojourn. 

The judges in the Somerset Maugham Trust Scheme are elected by the Society 
of Authors' Committee of Management, and each will normally hold his position 



252 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

on the board of judges for a maximum period of three years. The judges for the 
1949 award are Miss C. V. Wedgwood, Mr. C. Day Lewis and Mr. V. S. Pritchett. 
Any questions relating to the terms of the award should be addressed to The Society 
of Authors, 84 Drayton Gardens, S.W.10, to which candidates should send the 
literary work they wish to submit for an award. Only one published work should 
be submitted by a candidate, and it must be accompanied by a statement of his 
or her age, place of birth, and other published works, and a remittance to cover 
the return of the book by post. Candidates may be asked to present themselves 
for an interview with the board of judges. 

The closing date for the submission of books to be considered is December 31st 
of the preceding year. 

The Award for 1948 was given to P. H. Newby on the strength of his promise and 
performance in general, and of his novel Journey to the Interior in particular. 

THE HAWTHORNDEN PRIZE 

The Hawthornden Prize, for which books do not have to be specially submitted, 
is awarded annually to the author of what, in the opinion of the Committee, is the 
best bit of imaginative work in prose or verse published during the preceding twelve 
months by a British author under forty-one years of age. The Prize is 100. It was 
founded by the late Miss Alice Warrender in 1919. The last award was made in 
1944 to Martyn Skinner for Letters to Malaya. 

THE STOCK PRIZE 

The Stock (formerly Fernina Vie Heureuse) Prize is of the value of 40, and is 
offered for what, in the opinion of the Committee, is the best work of imagination 
produced within a given time by one of the younger British authors or by one who 
is considered not to have received adequate recognition. There are confidential 
meetings during the year at which books are placed upon the voting list. At the 
final meeting, by a careful system of voting, the Committee makes a choice of three 
works to be sent to the French Committee for final adjudication. The same process 
applies to the reciprocal prize to France provided by Messrs. Heinemann, and known 
as The Heinemann Prize, when three French works are submitted to the English 
Committee for selection. No award has been announced since 1939. 

JOHN LLEWELYN RHYS MEMORIAL PRIZE 

In memory of John Llewelyn Rhys, who was killed whilst serving with the R.A.F. 
in August 1940, his widow has instituted a prize for young writers of promise, to 
whom a little money, and still more a little recognition at the beginning of their 
career, may mean so much. 

A selection committee, which includes Mrs. Rhys, Emlyn Williams and plaf 
Stapledon, awards the prize to the author of the literary work which in their opinion 
is the most memorable, whether in achievement or in promise. The work may be 
a novel, play, poem, short story or a non-fiction work, and the committee reserve 
the right to withhold the award when no entry of sufficient merit is received. An 
author wishing to submit a work for consideration must be a citizen of the British 
Empire and under thirty years of age at the time of its publication. The work 
must be submitted not later than April 1st in any one year, and must have been 
published for the first time during the previous calendar year. Copies will be 
returned only if requested. All entries and enquiries should be forwarded to 23 
Maida Avenue, London, W.2. The prize for 1947 was awarded to Anne-Marie 
Walters for her book Moondrop to Gascony (Macmillan), and the prize for 1948 to 
Richard Mason for his novel The Wind Cannot Read (Hodder & Stoughton). 

The Prize for 1945 was awarded to James Aldridge for his novel The Sea Eagle, 
published by Michael Joseph, and for 1946 to Oriel Malet for My Bird Sings, 
published by Faber & Faber. 



LITERARY PRIZES AND AWARDS 253 

EYRE AND SPOTTISWOODE LITERARY FELLOWSHIP 

Eyre and Spottiswoode offer an annual fellowship of 500 to British writers, open 
for either fiction or non-fiction. 250 of this is prize money and 250 advance on 
royalties. At least half the proposed work must be submitted, together with 
particulars of the writer's age and career and of anything previously published. The 
ajudicators are Miss Elizabeth Bowen, Mr. V. S. Pritchett and Mr. Graham Greene. 

The 1947 award was made to Mr. Anthony West for a novel entitled The Vintage, 
to be published in due course. No award was made for the 1948 submissions. 
Closing date for the 1949 award, June 30th, 1949. 

THE TOM-GALLON TRUST 

This Trust was founded by the late Miss Nellie Tom-Gallon and is administered 
by the Society of Authors. Every alternate year an award is made of a sum in the 
neighbourhood of 100 a year for two years, and goes to a fiction writer of limited 
means who in the Society's judgment is best qualified to benefit under the terms of 
the Trust. The 1949 Award will be for the two years beginning January 1st, 1950. 
The 1947 Award went to Miss Dorothy K. Haynes. 

The conditions laid down by Miss Tom-Gallon as to the type of work that may be 
submitted for consideration are very wide; but the adjudicators bear in mind Miss 
Tom-Gallon's expressed preference for work of a traditional rather than of an 
experimental character. 

Any author wishing to compete for the award must have had at least one short 
story accepted for publication. 

THE ROSE MARY CRAWSHAY PRIZE 

The Rose Mary Crawshay Prize is of the value of 100. It was originally founded, 
in 1888, by the late Rose Mary Crawshay, for yearly prizes on Byron, Shelley, and 
Keats. In 1915 the Scheme passed into the administration of a body of Trustees 
consisting of the President and Secretary of the British Academy, and others. 
The Prize may be awarded annually to a woman of any nationality who, in the 
judgment of the Council of the British Academy, has written or published within 
three calendar years next preceding the date of the Award an historical or critical 
work of sufficient value on any subject connected with English Literature, preference 
being given to a work regarding one of the poets Byron, Shelley, or Keats. If in 
the year two works of exceptional merit are deemed worthy of a Prize, a second Prize 
not exceeding 65 may be awarded. Communications may be addressed to the 
Secretary of the British Academy, Burlington Gardens, London, W.I. The latest 
award was made in 1947 to Miss Marjorie Nicolson for her book Newtons "Opficks" 
and the Eighteenth Century Poets. 

THE CROMER GREEK PRIZE 

The Cromer Greek Prize was founded by the late Lord Cromer with the view 
of encouraging the study of Greek. The Prize, which is competitive, is administered 
by the British Academy, and awarded for the best Essay on any subject connected 
with the language, history, art, literature, or philosophy of Ancient Greece. The 
Prize, which is ordinarily a sum of 40, is awarded annually in March. Competition 
is open to all British subjects who will be under twenty-six years of age on Decem- 
ber 31st preceding the award. Copies of the rules governing the Cromer Prize may 
be obtained from the Secretary of the British Academy, Burlington Gardens, W.I. 

THE LIBRARY ASSOCIATION CARNEGIE MEDAL 

The Library Association Carnegie Medal is awarded for an outstanding book for 
children by an English author, published in England during the year. It was 
instituted by the Library Association, whose work owes so much to the benefactions 
of the Carnegie Trust, to commemorate the centenary of Andrew Carnegie's birth 
in 1835. 

Recommendations for the award are made by the public libraries and the final 



254 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS* YEAR BOOK 

decision rests with the council of the Library Association. Consideration is given 
not only to the literary quality and suitability of the work, but also to the type, 
paper, illustrations and binding. It should be added that the award is not necessarily 
restricted to books of an imaginative nature. 

An award was made in 1947 to Mr. Walter de la Mare for Collected Stones for 
Children, published by Faber & Faber. 

THE BLACKWELL PRIZE 

The Blackwell Prize of approximately 75 is administered by the University of 
Aberdeen. This Prize is open to unrestricted competition. It is awarded in alternate 
years, and a different subject is selected each time. Essays, bearing a motto only, 
must be accompanied by a sealed envelope bearing the same motto and containing 
the writer's full name and address, and lodged with the Secretary to the University, 
from whom further details may be obtained. 

THE BERTRAND STEWART PRIZE 

80 is given annually under the will of the late Captain Bertrand Stewart, a 
London solicitor, who was killed in the Battle of the Marne in September 1914, 
for the best essay on some military problem, the study or discussion of which would 
tend to increase the efficiency of the British Army as a fighting force. 

The competition is open to British subjects who have served or are serving as officers 
or in other ranks or ratings of the fighting Services, including the Navy and Royal 
Marines, the Regular Army Special Reserve, Territorial Armv and Militia, the Royal 
Air Force, the Naval, Military, and Air Forces of India, the Dominions, and the 
Colonies. 

Full particulars are published in the Army Quarterly. 

THE FELICIA HEMANS PRIZE 

The Felicia Hemans Prize consists of a bronze medal together with a sum of 
money (about 2). It is awarded annually for a lyrical poem, the subject of which 
may be chosen by the competitor. Open to past and present members of University 
College or of the University of Liverpool. The prize shall not be awarded more 
than once to the same competitor. Poems endorsed "Hemans Prize," must be sent 
in to the Registrar of Liverpool University on or before May 1st. Competitors 
may submit either published or unpublished verse, but no competitor may submit 
more than one poem. 

EDWARD J. O'BRIEN SHORT STORY PRIZE 

This prize, commemorating the late Edward O'Brien and his work for the short 
story, is awarded by the publishers and proprietors of English Story. The award 
is made after the publication of each alternate series of English Story for the best 
short story to appear in either that or the immediately preceding series. The value 
of the prize is 10. 

W. H. HEINEMANN FOUNDATION FOR LITERATURE 

The purpose of this Foundation is to encourage the production of literary works 
of real worth. The prize shall be deemed a reward for actual achievement. 

Works in any branch of literature may be submitted to the verdict of the Royal 
Society of Literature which shall be final and without appeal. 

Works of prose fiction shall not be excluded from competition, but the judges 
are requested to bear in mind that the Testator's intention is primarily to reward 
those classes of literature which are less remunerative, namely, poetry, criticism, 
biography, history, etc. 

The recipient of a Prize shall not again be eligible for five years. 

The Foundation being for the benefit of works of English Literature, it is the 
Testator's intention that the word " English" shall have its widest meaning and that 
any work originally written in the English language shall be eligible. 

Works submitted by their authors will not be admitted, but those selected by their 
publishers will be welcome. 



LITERARY PRIZES AND AWARDS 255 

The awards for 1947 were made to Victoria Sackville-West for The Garden 
(Michael Joseph, Ltd.), and the Rt. Hon. Earl Russell for History of Western 
Philosophy (Allen & Unwin). 

THE ROGERS PRIZE 

The Rogers Prize, awarded by the University of London, may be said to be 
competitive in that it is open to all persons whose names appear on the Medical 
Register of the United Kingdom. The Prize consists of a sum of 100, and is 
awarded approximately every five years; it is given for an Essay or Dissertation on 
some Medical or Surgical subject, which shall be named by the University. For 
further information, application should be made to the Academic Registrar, University 
of London, The Senate House, W.C.I. 

THE ALEXANDER PRIZE 

Candidates for the Alexander Prize may choose their own subject for an Essay, 
but they must submit their choice for approval to the Literary Director, Royal 
Historical Society, 96 Cheyne Walk, S.W.10. 

THE NOBEL PRIZE 

The Nobel Prize in Literature is one of the Foundations created by the will of the 
late Alfred Nobel, the Swedish scientist who invented dynamite. The awarding 
authority is the Swedish Academy (for Literature), and particulars concerning 
conditions, etc., can be obtained from Nobelstiftelsens Styrelse, Sturegatan 14, 
Stockholm. No direct application for a prize will, however, be taken into con- 
sideration. It was bestowed upon Rudyard Kipling in 1907, upon W. B. Yeats 
in 1923, upon George Bernard Shaw in 1925, and upon John Galsworthy in 1932. 
The Nobel Prizes are understood to be worth about 11,000 each. They number 
five: (a) Physics, (b) Chemistry, (c) Medicine or Physiology, (d) Literature, and 
(e) the Preservation of Peace. 

THE S. H. PRIOR MEMORIAL PRIZE 

The S. H. Prior Memorial Prize consists of a sum of 100 awarded annually for 
an outstanding contribution to Australian literature. Entries, which close on June 
6th of each year, are limited to the published work of Australian authors, and are 
judged by a panel of selected judges. (Australian for this purpose means born or 
naturalised in Australasia, New Zealand, or the British South Pacific islands or a 
bonafide resident of any of these places for the two years preceding the closing date.) 
All queries, and communications to be addressed to the Trustees, S. H. Prior

as a rule open to Britishers. 

THE DENYSE CLAIROUIN PRIZE 

After the death of Denyse Clairouin in Ravensbruck prison camp this prize was 
founded by many of her friends to encourage the appreciation of international 
literature, a work to which Denyse Clairouin devoted much of her life. 

The American award for 1947 was made to Professor Justin O'Brien for his 
translation The Journals of Andre Gide\ the French prize to Pierre Leyris for his 
translation of T. S. Eliot's Poems, 1910-1930; and the British prize for 1948 to

LITERARY PRIZES AND AWARDS 257

10 annually in competition for poems of place. Competitors, who must be 
members of The Poetry Society, may submit not more than two poems.

narrative poems are preferred. All entries for the 1949 competition must be type-

sonnet must have a title and definite subject and not be labelled merely "Sonnet." 
Details of the sonnet form to be used may be obtained on application to 
The Poetry Society. 



MARKETS SECTION 
MARKETS FOR WRITERS 

MORE than a thousand journals are included in the British Journals section of the 
Year Book, almost all of them offering opportunities to th$ writer, some in greater 
measure than in others. Some 350 leading Dominion, Colonial and American 
journals are also included, and while most of these have little space for free-lance 
contributions, many of them will always consider outstanding work. 

Over 500 British publishers are included, as well as some 230 overseas publishers, 
all of them ready to consider work by new writers. 

The advice we would offer to all writers is to study their market carefully. Many 
publishers include no fiction in their list, yet numerous manuscripts are submitted 
to them by writers who have not taken sufficient trouble to ascertain: (a) do Messrs. 
Blank publish fiction? (b) and equally important, do they publish the sort of fiction 
I have written? A novel suitable for Mills and Boon is unlikely to be acceptable 
to Macmillans, and vice-versa. Similarly an article or short-story suitable for New 
Writing is unlikely to appeal to the readers of Good Taste. The importance of 
studying the market cannot be over-emphasised. It is an editor's job to know what 
his readers want, and to see that they get it. Thus free-lance contributions must 
be tailored to fit a specific market; subject, theme, treatment, length, etc., must meet 
the editor's requirements. 

The Classified Index at the end of the Year Book provides a rough guide to 
markets. It must be used with discrimination, and whenever possible it is always 
desirable to examine a copy of a journal if you are not familiar with it, and are 
submitting a MS. to the editor of it for the first time. 

Most publishers have a full programme, with a long list of books awaiting re- 
printing. Even so, first class MSS. of almost every category will find a publisher. 
Here it must again be emphasised: take care to choose a suitable publisher, and 
remember that a reputable publisher will undertake all financial risk of publication, 
except possibly for works of an academic nature. 



MARKETS FOR PLAYS 

THE number of new plays produced in the West End continues to be distressingly 
small. In the past year theatres on the fringe of the West End and in the suburbs 
have sponsored many brave new ventures, but few of the plays have been found good 
enough for transfer to the West End After several years of valuable pioneer work 
at the Embassy Theatre, Mr. Anthony Hawkey declares that there are insufficient 
good new plays to justify the continuance of his policy, and he proposes to concern 
himself in future mainly with revivals with fewer new plays in his programme. 

The Company of Four at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, the Lindsey, the 
Chanticleer, and the Gateway are among those which have produced work by new or 
comparatively unknown writers. In the provinces many repertory groups have 
included new plays in their programmes, often wfch the encouragement and support 
of the Arts Council. 

It is probable that competitions for full-length and one-act plays and other special 



MARKETS FOR PLAYS 259 

opportunities for new plays will be announced after the YEAR BOOK has gone to 
press, and writers with plays on the stocks would do well to watch carefully for 
announcements in the Press. The theatre column of The Observer, The Author, 
The Writer, John o' London's Weekly, Drama, New Theatre, Theatre To-day and 
Theatre News Letter (77 Dean Street, London, W.I.) are the journals in which 
announcements are most likely to appear. 

Sketches for revues, concert parties, and broadcasting, and plays for youth 
organisations are in demand. Sketches are usually bought outright, but in any 
case authors should make quite certain of what rights they will be disposing before 
accepting any offer. * 

In every case it is advisable to send a preliminary letter before submitting a 
manuscript. Suggestions for the preparation of manuscripts will be found on 
page 324 of the YEAR BOOK. 

Writers of plays are also referred to Censorship of Plays on page 307, and to 
About the Sale of a Play on page 308.

MARKETS FOR SCENARIOS 

Markets for scenarios are extremely limited. Most of the larger film companies 
maintain editorial departments, whose job is to search out literary material suitable 
for the cinema. They are usually in close touch with publishers and agents and 
Jittle that is outstanding escapes their notice. Nevertheless there may be occasional 
openings for the freelance writer in the general market, and more frequent oppor- 
tunities for children's and documentary films.

THE BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE 

The general object of the British Film Institute is "to encourage the use and 
development of the cinematograph as a medium of entertainment and instruction," 
and in its sixteen years of existence it was founded in October 1933 it has done 
much to justify the hopes of its founders. The scope of the Institute includes every 
type of film, films for entertainment as well as films with a cultural and educational 
value. Through its Information Bureau, which answers many thousands of questions 
annually on every aspect of the cinema, and through its various reports and other 
publications, the Institute is of great value to writers dealing with film matters. 
The annual subscription to the Institute (to June 30th) is 1 10s. (with all literature 
published during the year, 2 2s.); and after December 31st, 15s. The address of 
the Institute is 164 Shaftesbury Avenue, W.C.2. T. Temple Bar 1642. 



264 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

WRITING FOR THE FILMS 

Markets for scenarios are extremely limited. Most of the larger film companies 
maintain editorial departments, whose job is to search out literary material suitable 
for the cinema. They are usually in close touch with publishers and agents and 
little that is outstanding escapes their notice. Nevertheless there may be occasional 
openings for the freelance writer in the general market, and more frequent oppor- 
tunities for children's and documentary films. 

PREPARING THE MS. 

1. A title page is essential. This should be made out in the same way as when 
sending a story or article to an editor, except that it is not necessary to mention 
the number of words. 

2. A list of characters should be given. Some writers include short character 
sketches and mention the type of player (e.g. "an Aubrey Smith type") or 
the particular player they have in mind (do not do this unless you know that 
the cast you suggest is at least feasible and not a rank impossibility for the 
company to whom the MS. is submitted). Other writers simply give the names 
of the characters and a two- to five-word note about each. 

3. If you have written your story out to more than about 5000 words, it is not 
a bad idea to preface it with a shorter version provided you can write such 
a version in a manner calculated to interest and arouse curiosity. 

4. It is essential to have the MS. typed. Double-spacing is to be recommended, 
with a wide margin on the left-hand side. Quarto-size paper is probably the 
most convenient size. 

5. It is advisable to bind the MS. in some form of simple cardboard cover. 

SUBMISSION 

It is obviously useless to submit your story to one of the companies who refuse to 
read stories unless they are sent in through a recognised literary agent. It is advisable 
therefore, to find out which these companies are before sending it in. 

When submitting a film story direct to a film company it is usual to address the 
envelope to 44 The Scenario Editor." There is no necessity to write a covering letter. 
An adequately stamped return envelope must of course be enclosed. If you do 
write a covering letter, make it as brief as possible. If you think the story might 
be suitable for one or more of the company's long-contract artists, that is worth 
mentioning. Remember that the scenario editor and his assistants are busy men 
and completely indifferent either to your private problems or personal achievements. 
If your story involves detailed knowledge about a subject upon which you are 
specially qualified to write, a brief reference to the fact that you have lived for ten 
years with Bedouin Arabs or in a steel works, or whatever it is, might be advisable. 



BROADCASTING 
B.B.C. REQUIREMENTS 

Talks. The BBC welcomes manuscripts either from experts or from people with 
a personal experience to describe: suggestions for single talks are more acceptable 
than for series. Manuscripts should be written to be read aloud, and timed for 
5, 10 or 15 minutes. Talks are normally read at the microphone by their authors, 
and writers submitting manuscripts may be asked before final acceptance to attend 
an audition, either in London or in one of the Regional studios. Short stories 
specially written for broadcasting will also be considered. 

All typewritten manuscripts should be addressed to the Head of Talk's Depart- 
ment, BBC, Broadcasting House, London W.I. 

Plays. Nearly a thousand plays are broadcast in the course of a year. Many of 
these are well-known stage plays, but many are written in the first place as radio 
plays, and by new writers. There is a perpetual demand for new writers who are 
prepared to take the trouble to learn the technique with the help of certain members 
of the Drama Department who set aside time for this purpose. 

Plays of all kinds are wanted, "straight" drama, fantasy, comedy, farce, thrillers, 
and so on. There is also a wide field for competent adaptations of short stories and 
novels. In order to save time and work it is wise, before starting to write a radio 
play, to find out from the BBC Drama Department if a play on that particular theme 
would be acceptable. If the theme is acceptable, then a short synopsis of a few 
lines, accompanied by two or three pages of dialogue, would enable the BBC to 
judge whether it would be worth while to encourage the writer to -go ahead. 

Notes on Radio Drama, including a model synopsis, will be sent on application. 
Manuscripts must be clearly typed. 

If the writer lacks original ideas, but thinks that he has a sense of drama and can 
write good dialogue, the field of adaptation may be open to him, but, here again, he 
should not embark upon any work (except for his own satisfaction and practice) 
until he has assured himself by consulting the BBC that the novel or short story 
which he proposes to adapt is one which would be acceptable, and has not already 
been done. It is also possible that the original author may not consent, and this, 
too, has to be found out by the BBC. 

All first communications should be addressed to the Play Librarian, Broadcasting 
House, London W.I, or to the Drama Producer in any of the Regional Studios. 

Music. The music policy of the BBC, dedicated to the encouragement of the best 
music old and new, continues to enlarge its range. Auditions for professional 
soloists and ensembles have been resumed on an active scale with an outside pro- 
fessional assessor on the listening panel. 

A Music Panel of distinguished musicians meets regularly to consider the suit- 
ability for performance of the large number of MSS. constantly submitted. The 
BBC also commissions from British composers works of all kinds ranging from 
opera to music for features or for special occasions. 

Variety. New ideas for Variety programmes are constantly sought. Careful 
consideration is given to all scripts submitted by a panel consisting of the Head 
of Variety, the Assistant Head, and senior producers. The chief requirement is 
originality; the vast majority of scripts sent in are merely variations of existing 

I* 



266 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

programmes. In general it is inadvisable to write scripts for a particular star artist 
unless the writer has a really intimate knowledge of the artist's work. Scripts are 
required for all lengths of programme ranging from 10 minutes to one hour. Fees 
are a matter for negotiation with the Corporation's Copyright Department. Type- 
written scripts should be addressed to the Script Editor, Aeolian Hall, New Bond 
Street, London W.I. 

Children's Hour. Here again there are numerous opportunities for original material 
tales, talks, plays, and dialogue stories. Stories for younger children should be 
approximately 800-1000 words, and for older children 1500-2000 words. Radio 
plays should be timed, including musical interludes, to last, approximately, 45 or 
50 minutes. Shorter plays, for younger listeners can be timed to run 30 minutes, 
and the same length for Dialogue Stories. General matter should be sent to the 
Head of Children's Hour, Broadcasting House, London W.I, but authors should 
submit all manuscripts having local interest to BBC Regional offices. Ail manu- 
scripts must be typewritten. It is suggested that potential authors should study the 
market by listening regularly to main Children's Hour radio productions, thereby 
acquiring the right technique. The standard of material is of high quality. 

BROADCASTING RIGHTS AND TERMS 

Terms for the broadcasting of stage plays and various types of published literary 
material are governed by the Standard Terms Agreement between the B.B.C. and 
the Publishers' Association. These may be summarised as follows: 

Dramatic and prose works: For a broadcast up to 10 minutes, 1 per minute. 
Thereafter 15/- per minute up to 90 minutes. 

Poems: For a broadcast up to 8 lines l^gns.; 9 to 16 lines 3 gns.; 17 to 24 
lines 4 gns. Thereafter 1 gn. per 12 lines up to 144 lines, and 10/6d. per 
12 lines after 144 lines. 

Prose works required for adaptation into dramatic form: For a broadcast up to 
20 minutes -15/- per minute. Thereafter 12/- per minute. 

The above rates apply to one performance given in the B.B.C.'s Service for the 
United Kingdom (except where the material is used in the Television Service only, 
when I of the above rates are paid). In the case of the Overseas Service in English 
of the above rates are paid for one broadcast, or the full rate for more than one 
but not more than seven broadcasts. For a broadcast in the Overseas Service in a 
foreign language -J of the above rates are paid, with some small increase for very 
short broadcasts. 

For material specially written for broadcasting all relevant factors, such as the 
type of material, its length, and the status of the author, are taken into account 
when assessing fees. 

Payment for specially written stories and plays, whether commissioned or sub- 
mitted to the BBC, is made on acceptance of the material. In the case of music 
commissioned by the BBC the original score is now returned to the composer at his 
request and not as in the past automatically retained by the BBC. 

BROADCAST TALKS 

Details of the agreement which the BBC require to be signed before a talk is broad- 
cast are given below:

notified of any objection. Letters marked "Personal" are forwarded unopened. 



AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING COMMISSION 
REQUIREMENTS 

THE Australian Broadcasting Commission controls, under the authority of the 
Government of Australia, the national broadcasting svstem of that country. Its 
activities cover Australia by a network of 4500 miles of communications radiating 
from the capital cities of the six States, and its programmes, designed to meet the 
need of many types of listener, are especially concerned with broadcasting as a cultural 
influence. Accordingly, the Commission needs literary material, much of it similar 
to that used by the BBC but with the essential difference that the public to be catered 
for is the Australian public, a public, that is to say, with its own environment, needs, 
outlook, ideas, opinions, and tastes. 

Plays. Many plays broadcast by the BBC are used by the ABC. But apart from 
these, many other plays are required. Most types of play are in regular production 
the classic drama of the greatest writers, every variety of modern drama and comedy, 
radio plays, stage plays adapted for radio, adaptations of stories, etc. The average 
lentuh of pla>b is from fifty minutes to one hour. 

Light Entertainment. Variety material, scripts of topical or of fanciful humour, 
scripts of light-entertainment plays with music, and so forth, may be submitted. 

Short Stories. Occasional openings for short stories of 1200 to 1500 words. 

Children's Sessions. Plays, talks, stories, serials may be submitted. Length: 
stories 800-1000 words; plays not more than 15 minutes. 

Talks. Most talks are commissioned or are recorded talks from the BBC pro-

of from 8J to 13 minutes' length.

CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION 
REQUIREMENTS 

THE Drama Department is interested particularly in radio plays designed for the 
half-hour broadcasting period. Since various regularly scheduled drama periods 
are broadcast in various parts of Canada, plays of all possible types are required. 
The Drama Department does not buy scripts outright but pays for them on a royalty 
basis, the rights being secured merely for a single half-hour broadcast. The minimum 
fee for a half-hour performance is $50.00. Fees up to $100.00 for single broad- 
cast rights are paid, depending upon the scope and importance of the period for 
which the play is being scheduled. Plays designed for periods of more or less^than 
the half-hour are not generally required and should be subject to enquiry before 
being submitted.

All writing for feature broadcasts is done on specific assignment. 

Talks and Public Affairs provide a wide scope for the talents of both professional 
and amateur speakers and writers, Roughly, the Talks Department wants material 
of two types: firstly, individual talks or series by people who are experts in various 
fields, and secondly, reporters or commentators or interviewers who have a know- 
ledge of radio technique, acceptable voices and an ability to write for radio. The 
Department pays fees ringing from $10.00 for 5-mmute reports to $50.00 for a 
broadcast by a highly trained commentator or distinguished speaker. All talks are 
copyrighted by the CBC for a period of three months following the date of broadcast, 
after which the copyright reverts to the speaker. In this interim period application 
for permission to reprint talks must be made to the CBC, although such permission 
is usually gladly given. Most talks are 15 minutes in length, although there are 
exceptions notably the 1 1 -minute talk and 5-minute reports for inclusion in quarter- 
hour periods. The Talks Department also is continually searching for speakers who 
might be acceptable for discussion broadcasts and also for skilled writers who can 
dramatise information for radio. This latter example is one of the instances in 
which the Talks Department would accept a script if the author was unable to 
broadcast himself. 

Broadcasting in Canada differs from broadcasting in England in that the Cor- 
poration operates five different networks, one in each ot the five ti ne-zones. These 
five networks combine to make what are called the Trans-Canada and Dominion 
networks (two separate cross-country networks are operated, with different service 
on each) when added together. But because of the various times across Canada, 
each of the five regional networks operates independently for the benefit of their 
respective listeners, programmes such as news, school broadcasts, and other public 
service presentations being scheduled on these networks at times best suited to the 
listening habits of the audiences concerned. In most other cases these five networks 
are amalgamated into either the Trans-Canada or Dominion network and so present 
the broadcasts to the .country as a whole. 

Enquiries concerning programmes and programme material should be addressed 
to the Programme Division, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, 354 Jarvis Street, 
Toronto, Canada.

MARKETS FOR ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, ETC. 

MOST of the advice given to writers on page 258 applies equally to artists, illustrators 
and designers. Most book publishers are glad to see artists' work, either by post 
or appointment, and maintain a file of artists whose work they hope to use when 
suitable opportunities occur. It is not always easy to secure appointments with 
editors of journals and magazines, and it is often more advantageous to send a 
small selection of work by registered post (enclosing stamps for return). It is, 
however, a waste of time to submit, shall we say, illustrations for boys' adventure 
stories to Messrs. Batsford: markets must be studied carefully. 

The attention of artists is called to the articles of special interest to them on 
pages 320-324.

MARKETS FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS 

Photographers are advised to study carefully the Classified Index of requirements 
on page 346 in conjunction with the detailed requirements of journals at the 
beginning of the Year Book. Book publishers, especially those issuing technical 
books and school books, will be glad to know the range of subjects covered by a 
photographer. 



PHOTOGRAPHIC AGENCIES 

THEIR USE AND ABUSE 
BY ALEC DAVIS 

PHOTOGRAPHIC agencies can be useful to the photographer who wants to get his 
work into the newspapers. Their methods of working can be understood by com- 
parison with news agencies rather than literary agencies; they look for news value 
rather than style or technical perfection, and they do not make the placing of free- 
lances' work their sole occupation. Rather in most cases they look upon the 
unattached photographer as somebody who can supplement the activities of their 
staff men. 

With news pictures to appear in that night's or next morning's national papers, 
there must be no delay. You cannot send them round from paper to paper seeking 
the highest bidder. If you send them to one paper and state that they are Exclusive, 
you may be paid more than if they were not. But it will probably pay you better 
still to sell them to seven or eight different papers. This is where the agencies help. 
It is generally worth your while to allow them to take the forty or fifty per cent 
commission they require, for a good agency can multiply your sales manifold. 

If your pictures are really "hot" news, waste no time in developing, but (from the 
provinces) send undeveloped negatives by passenger train from your nearest railway 
station to the London terminus, addressed to the agency and marked "to be called 
for." Include with the negatives your name and address and description of what 
the pictures represent. If you have to write this by hand, write proper names in 
CAPITAL LETTERS. Having put your packet on the train, telephone or send a 
telegram to the agency to which it is despatched, stating station and time of arrival 
in London. Less urgent negatives can go by express post. 

If you have taken your pictures in London, you can take them yourself, or send 
them by messenger. 

A few exceptionally good "feature" pictures are accepted by agencies from free- 
lances, but it must be remembered they are not likely to be used by as many papers 
as newspictures (it would look rather silly if all the dailies came out the same morning 
with the same picture of, say. Highland sheep), so you may do better by submitting 
direct to one or two likely editors and saving agency commission. When you know 
the best market for your picture, send it straight there; do not bother an agency with 
it, but save time and commission.

REFERENCE SECTION 
COPYRIGHT* 

By F. E. SKONE JAMES, B.A., B.C.L., Barrister-at-Law. 

NATURE OF COPYRIGHT 

Copyright protection is not given to ideas or systems, plots or themes, however 
original; it is aimed solely to prevent the copying of literary, musical, dramatic or 
artistic works. The idea, theme or plot must therefore be reduced into concrete 
form before protection can be claimed and then the protection given is to the form 
and not to the idea. If the idea is reproduced in a quite different form, this is not 
an infringement of copyright. 

Another basic principle of copyright law is that it does not give a monopoly even 
to the form selected, since it is directed to preventing copying and not to giving an 
absolute title to any particular form of words or of artistic production. Copyright 
protection is given to dictionaries and directories and to photographs, but this does 
not mean that another may not lawfully produce, independently, an almost identical 
work; he is only guilty of infringement, if he copies the earlier work. 

A further important matter in regard to copyright protection is that (in the British 
Empire and most European countries at least. See post "works protected abroad") 
no formalities are required. Copyright protection is afforded as soon as the page 
of manuscript is written, the sketch is drawn, or the melody is composed. The 
work does not need to be printed or published, no form of registration is needed, 
no "copyright reserved" notice is required. Publishers are required to deliver certain 
copies of published books to libraries (Section 15) but failure to do this does not 
affect the copyright, though it may give rise to liability for penalties (sub-section (6)). 

KIND OF WORKS PROTECTED 

Literary, dramatic, and artistic works are defined in the Act (Section 35 (1)) see 
also definitions of "work of sculpture," "architectural work of art," "engravings" 
and "photograph." 

It has been decided that the expression "literary" does not involve any qualifi- 
cation of style but covers any work expressed in print or writing, so long as it is 
substantial enough to involve some literary skill and labour of composition. And 
a similarly slight degree of skill and labour is imposed in regard to other classes of 
works. 

Thus selections of poems, abridgements, notes to school textbooks, arrangements 
of music and other compilations are protected, provided that it is established that 
the production has involved a certain amount of intellectual endeavour and is not 
merely mechanical. 

Artistic works intended for use as industrial designs are however not protected 
under the Act (Section 22). Such works can be protected under the Patents and 
Designs Acts 1907-1931, but in that case certain formalities of registration are 
required and a Patent Agent should be consulted. 

* It'is not possible in a short article such as this must be to examine the Law of Copyright in 
detail. The general principles are explained and attention is drawn to many points of special interest. 
Extracts from the Copyright Act, 1911 are given on page 285. Expert legal advice should be sought 
in case of practical difficulty. 



COPYRIGHT 279 

TITLES AND PSEUDONYMS 

The title of a book or story is normally not protected under the Copyright Act 
since it is too short to be treated as a literary work. If however a title is taken and 
used in such a way as to cause confusion, a "passing off" action can often be brought 
successfully. 

A similar ground of action arises if an author's pseudonym is used by another in 
such a way as to cause the public to believe that the second work is by the first author. 
Apart from agreement, if an author has been writing for a periodical under a par- 
ticular pen-name and ceases to contribute, he is entitled to use the pen-name elsewhere 
and the periodical is not entitled to continue to use it. 

TO WHOM COPYRIGHT PROTECTION IS GIVEN 

In general the person to be protected is the author. This means the person who has 
actually written the book or drawn the picture; a person who has merely suggested 
a theme or supplied information is not an author; this follows from the general 
principle stated above that protection is given to form and not ideas; it is the author 
of the form with whom copyright law is concerned. 

In the case of photographs and portraits and engravings and similar works a 
different rule applies (Section 5(1) (a)) and, if the original is ordered and paid for, 
the copyright vests in the client and not in the artist or photographer. 

Where a work is made by an employee in the course of his employment the copy- 
right vests in the employer (Section 1 1(6)). This however only applies in the case 
of a strict contract of service; where the author or artist is merely employed to 
provide a certain work and is not a servant, liable to detailed control as to the manner 
of production, the copyright vests in him and not the employer. And, even in the 
case of a full time employee, work done for the employer out of hours will remain 
the copyright of the servant. 

JOINT AUTHORS 

Joint authorship involves that two or more persons must have collaborated to 
produce a single work. Each must have taken some part in producing jointly the 
work protected; as has been seen, a man, who merely suggests the idea or theme, is 
not an author at all. Again, if the parts produced by each are easily separable, it 
is not a case of joint authorship but each owns a separate copyright in each part 
(Section 16). In the case of a work of joint authorship, neither can deal with the 
copyright without the consent of the other or others but, on the other hand, each 
can bring actions against the other or third parties for any infringement. Other 
matters of importance to joint authors are referred to under "Duration of copyright 
protection." 

ASSIGNMENT OF COPYRIGHT 

An assignment of copyright must be in writing and signed by the author or his 
agent (Section 5 (2)), but no other formality is required. Copyright may be assigned 
for certain areas, or for a certain period, or parts of the right may be assigned i.e. 
the right to perform, mechanical rights, printing and publishing rights. On the 
other hand it is not possible to assign the right to print in one particular form or for 
one particular purpose e.g. serial rights, book rights, etc. since separate rights of this 
nature are not conferred by the Act; such rights can only be granted by way of 
licence. The copyright in a work not yet written cannot be completely assigned 
but substantially the same result will be obtained by an agreement for its assignment 
when created. 

LICENCES 

A licence to print, publish or perform or to exercise other rights conferred by the 
Act does not require to be in writing and may be implied from conduct. The 
principal distinction between the position of an assignee and a licensee is that the 
former can, but the latter cannot, sue third parties for the infringement of the right. 



280 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

Other distinctions are referred to under "Publishing Agreements." A licence may 
be expressed to be "sole and exclusive" in which event the grantor of the licence will 
be liable, if he grants a second licence; though the first licensee will in general have 
no right of action against the second. 

WHAT CONSTITUTES INFRINGEMENT 

Copyright is infringed by the reproduction or colourable imitation of any sub- 
stantial part of a copyright work. Such infringements are proved by a detailed 
comparison of similarities and proof is often difficult in the case of compilations 
which, of necessity, resemble one another; in such cases copying may be proved 
from the coincidence of trifling errors. In considering whether the part taken is 
substantial more regard is had to the importance than to the quantity of what is 
taken; thus to take a few bars of the essential melody of a tune may constitute an 
infringement. An infringement is committed whether the copying has been directly 
from the original or through an intervening copy. 

Other modes of infringement are to publish an unpublished work, to make a 
translation, to dramatise a book and to make a novel of a play. (See also per- 
formance, films, records, broadcasting and television infra.) 

In addition to the direct infringements above described, an actionable wrong is 
committed by anyone who knowingly sells, exhibits in public, distributes or imports 
copies unlawfully made (Section 2(2)). It is to be noted that in these cases proof of 
knowledge is essential and, in practice, it may be difficult to establish these offences 
except by giving express notice and taking action if the offence is continued. 

PERFORMANCE IN PUBLIC 

It is an infringement to perform any substantial part of a copyright work in public 
and to permit any theatre or place of entertainment to be used for private profit for 
such a performance. A performance is in public unless it is purely private and 
domestic. It is not necessary that every member of the public shall have access or 
that a charge shall be made for admission. Performances at clubs or institutes 
with limited membership are therefore generally in public for this purpose. 

EXCEPTIONS TO LIABILITY FOR INFRINGEMENT 

It cannot of course be an infringement if the consent of the owner of the copyright 
has been given or is to be implied. Where however a consent has been given without 
payment, such consent may be withdrawn at any time. 

A work may be reproduced for purposes of private study, criticism, review or 
newspaper summary provided the use is fair (Section 2 (1) (i)). The test of fairness 
is whether the purpose of the use made is reasonable in the interests of criticism, etc. 
or whether what is produced is in substance a competing publication. 

There are also special exceptions in the case of the use by an artist of his studies 
(Section 2 (1) (ii)), the copying of works exhibited in public (Section 2 (1) (iii)), school 
books (Section 2 (1) (iv), newspaper reports of lectures (Section 2 (1) (v), public 
readings (Section 2 (1) (vi)), reports of political speeches (Section 20). 

Again, a published work may be republished by anyone at a certain period after 
the death of the author on payment of a specified royalty (Section 3. Proviso). 

And Government publications may in general be freely reproduced unless they 
bear thereon a "copyright reserved" notice. 

It should be observed however that ignorance is no defence, even if reasonable 
in the circumstances; printers run considerable risks in this connection since they 
have often no means of knowing that an infringement is being committed but they 
are nevertheless liable. 

WHO IS LIABLE FOR INFRINGEMENT 

In the case of an infringement by the publication of a copy or imitation, the author, 
publisher and printer of the infringing work are equally liable. 

Where an infringement is committed by performance in public, not only the actual 
performers but the firm or company by whom they are employed are liable. 



COPYRIGHT 281 

Greater difficulty arises in the determination of the liability of hirers of films, 
owners of halls and other persons who have not infringed either personally or by 
their actual servants. It is an infringement however to "authorise" any infringing 
act so that, if it proved that any person by supplying the material, or otherwise made 
the infringement possible, he will generally be held liable. 

THE REMEDIES FOR INFRINGEMENT 

A copyright owner, whose right is infringed, is, in general, entitled as of right to 
an injunction i.e. an order of the Court restraining the defendant from repeating the 
infringement, and can insist on such an order although offered a personal under- 
taking first. It is to be noted however that such an order will be directed only to 
repetition of the actual infringement; i.e. an order cannot be obtained to restrain 
copying of future parts of a serial story because earlier parts have been copied. 

A second remedy is damages for infringement. These are usually based upon 
evidence of loss suffered by the defendant, i.e. that if the infringing book had not been 
published, he would have been able to publish more copies of his own book or that 
he otherwise has lost a market for his material. Damages for infringement may 
however be penal in the case of a deliberate infringement and proof of actual loss 
is not essential. It is permissible, in assessing damages, to have regard to the sort 
of fee which would have been asked, if a licence had been requested. 

Damages however can alternatively be based upon a claim for conversion, upon 
the principle that infringing material is deemed the property of the copyright owner. 
Under this head regard is had not to the loss to the copyright owner but to the value 
of the infringing work. Where only a portion of the work containing the infringe- 
ment represents infringing material it is necessary first to assess the value of the 
infringing work as a whole, by reference to the sale price of each copy multiplied by 
the number of copies, and then to assess the damages at that fraction of this figure 
which the infringing material bears to the whole. Where the portion of the whole 
which is infringing is relatively slight, e.g. in the case of an infringing article in a 
newspaper, this calculation is difficult. 

A further alternative remedy is an account of profits. Here the claim is based not 
upon the value of the infringing material but upon the amount of profit made by the 
defendant in respect of the infringement. 

In addition to the foregoing remedies a successful Plaintiff is entitled to have 
delivered up to him all infringing material in the Defendant's possession. 

The special period limiting the time during which a copyright action may be 
brought should be noted (Section 10); this period of three years is equally applicable 
to a claim for damages for conversion. 

There are further restrictions on the remedies obtainable in the case of an innocent 
infriiiger (Section 8) and in relation to architecture (Section 9). The former re- 
striction is rarely of assistance to defendants since what has to be established is not 
innocence of intentiqn to infringe but ignorance that the work reproduced enjoyed 
copyright protection. In view of the fact that every work enjoys copyright without 
formality this defence is difficult to establish, except in special circumstances where 
it might be reasonably thought that the work was out of copyright or not protected 
in this country. 

OTHER REMEDIES 

In addition to the remedies above mentioned, which are enforced by civil action, 
there are certain special forms of procedure open to persons whose rights are 
infringed. 

Certain infringements of copyright constitute a criminal offence rendering the 
offender liable to fines or imprisonment (Section 1 1). It should be noted however 
that proof of knowledge that an infringement is being committed is essential in all 
these cases. 

Two older acts (the Musical (Summary Proceedings) Copyright Act 1902 and the 
Musical Copyright Act 1906) give rights to seize pirated copies of musical works put 



282 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

on sale in a public and create offences punishable by fine or imprisonment for hawking 
and selling such copies. 

By Section 7 of the Fine Arts Copyright Act 1862 it is an offence (a) fraudulently 
to affix upon an artistic work any name, initials or monogram (b) fraudulently to 
sell an artistic work having thereon the name initials or monogram of a person who 
did not make the work (c) fraudulently to dispose of any copy or imitation of an 
artistic work as having been made by the author of the original work and (d) to sell 
or publish any artistic work with alterations as the unaltered work of the artist. The 
last mentioned offence can also be the subject of a claim for an injunction. 

Provision is also made (Section 14) for the detention by the Customs Authorities 
of infringing copies of copyright works made abroad and script to be imported into 
the United Kingdom. 

THE DURATION OF COPYRIGHT PROTECTION 

The normal period of copyright protection is during the life of the author and 
fifty years after his death (Section 3). In the case of a work of joint authorship the 
protection extends during the life of the author who dies last or for fifty years after 
the death of the author who dies first (whichever is the longer) Section 16(1). In the 
case of a work which has not been published or, if a dramatic or musical work, has 
not been published or performed during the life of the author, copyright subsists 
until publication, or performance and for fifty years thereafter (Section 17). The 
copyright in records and photographs is fifty years from the making of the work 
(Sections 19 and. 21), and in Government publications is fifty years from publication 
(Section 18). 

In the case of works which were in existence before the commencement of the Act 
of 1911 (the 1st July 1912), the terms of copyright above described apply if the work 
enjoyed copyright at such date (Section 24). This involves an examination of the 
terms of copyright subsisting under the various Acts in force before 1912. In 
general protection under these Acts was the life of the author and seven years or 
forty two years from publication, (whichever was the longer) but different terms of 
copyright were given by the various Acts dealing with artistic works. 

Where the copyright in a pre-Act work had been assigned before 1912, such copy- 
right reverts in the author or his assigns at the expiration of the old term of copyright 
applicable to the work but subject to various options in favour of the assignee 
(Section 24 provisos). 

FILMS 

The making of a film involves the creation of an artistic work, i.e. a series of 
photographs and, unless it is merely a record of passing events, the creation of a 
dramatic work (see definition of dramatic work in Section 35 (1)). The first owner 
of the artistic copyright is the owner of the negative at the time it is made (Section 21), 
whereas the first owner of the dramatic work may be difficult to determine. (See 
to whom protection given, above.) In fact a commercial film usually involves the 
exercise of a number of separate copyrights since, at each stage of its inception, a 
separate copyright work may be produced, e.g. story, screen dialogue, and the film 
as finally cut, and the ownership of copyright will depend upon the agreements of 
the various parties concerned with the film company. 

It is an infringement of the copyright in a novel or story to convert it into a film 
whether the actual language of the literary work is taken or not. But something 
more than a mere plot or idea must be taken; it must be proved that the film adopts 
a substantial part of the incidents used in the story to work out the plot. 

There is no copyright in a scene in actual life, e.g. sporting events, so that the 
organiser has no remedy in the case of the filming of such events provided that the 
film can be taken without trespass. And the passer by cannot complain if he is 
filmed in the street. 



COPYRIGHT 283 

GRAMOPHONE RECORDS 

A copyright work is infringed if any record or contrivance is made whereby it can 
be mechanically reproduced (Section 1 (2) (d)); this would include the making of 
ordinary gramophone records, musical box and pianola records and all forms of 
electrical recording, including sound films. The mechanical right in musical works 
is thus a valuable right and is quite distinct from the publishing right in the printed 
music and the performing right. 

There are however a complicated series of provisions (Section 19) under which, 
when a musical work has been once recorded with the consent of the copyright 
owner, it can be recorded thereafter by anyone else on payment of a fixed royalty, 
the payment whereof is in general secured by the issue of adhesive stamps to be 
attached to the record. The normal royalty is 6J per cent of the ordinary retail 
selling price of the record with a minimum of three farthings for each work reproduced 
on a single record. 

A separate copyright subsists in recorded music and, if a gramophone record is 
performed in public, a licence to perform is required from the gramophone company 
as well as from the owner of the copyright in the music itself. 

BROADCASTING AND TELEVISION 

Broadcasting involves an exercise of the right to perform a work in public. If 
music or drama are recorded, this also involves an exercise of the mechanical right, 
since the record is a contrivance whereby such works can be mechanically performed 
(Section 1 (2) (d)). 

If broadcast performances are played from a loud speaker in a public place, this 
involves a separate public performance not covered by any licence to perform given 
to the BBC. 

Television involves an exercise of similar rights to those involved in ordinary 
broadcasting. Both may involve an exercise of the right to dramatise a novel or 
literary work by means of a performance (Section 1 (2) (r)). 

PUBLISHING AGREEMENTS 

The simplest form of publishing agreement is a mere licence to publish in a news- 
paper or periodical for a single payment. The terms of such agreements usually 
depend upon implication or trade custom. It is generally understood that unsigned 
articles may be altered but that signed articles may not be altered without the author's 
permission. Where an article is sent to a periodical without covering letter, there 
will be implied, on the one hand, a licence to publish and, on the other, an agreement 
to pay such remuneration as is normal and reasonable. If the article is kept and the 
author is sent a proof for revision, the author is entitled to a fee even if the work is 
not actually published. 

Where a work is to be published on royalty terms it is important from the point of 
view of the author that he does not assign his copyright but only grants a licence. 
If he assigns, he will not be able to prevent the publisher from selling the rights in 
the work, he cannot complain of alterations made by the publisher short of such 
alterations as would be legally defamatory of the author, and he may be seriously 
prejudiced if the publisher gets into financial difficulties. Some protection is given 
to authors under Section 60 of the Bankruptcy Act 1914 but this is not available 
where the publisher is a limited company. A licence however is generally personal 
to the publisher, even if this is not expressly stated, and provision can be made to 
protect the author from alterations and in the case of insolvency of the publisher. 

It is often difficult to determine whether the words used involve an assignment or 
a licence and this should be clearly expressed. 

A publishing agreement, in the interests of the author, should require publication 
within some fixed time, should deal with the style and price of publication, the 
method of advertising, the number of free copies allowed and provide for proper 
accounts. 



284 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

Publishing agreements often provide options to the Publisher to acquire other 
rights in the work such as translation rights, the right to dramatise, film rights and 
rights to publish abroad or in the Dominions. From the author's point of view it 
is usually preferable that such rights shall be granted on royalty terms rather than 
for a single payment. The Publisher may also take an option on subsequent works 
of the author; such an option is enforceable by injunction to restrain the author 
from publishing elsewhere. 

Apart from express agreement a publisher is entitled to dispose of stock in hand 
after the licence is determined since such stock, having been lawfully made, does not 
constitute infringing copies. 

WORKS ORIGINATING ABROAD 

The Act of 1911 extends to works first published within the British Empire and 
to unpublished works of authors who aie Empire nationals or were resident within 
the British Empire when the work was made. A work is deemed first published 
within the Empire if published there before or within fourteen days after first publi- 
cation elsewhere (Section 35 (3)) and a work is published if copies are issued to the 
public in such quantities as are reasonably necessary to meet the public demand. 
Copyright throughout the British Empire is also extended to works first published 
in countries of the Copyright Union and unpublished works of authors who are 
nationals of or resident at the time of the making of the work in such countries. The 
countries of the Copyright Union include all European countries except the U.S.S.R., 
Japan, Siam, Brazil and the French, Dutch, Spanish and Portugese colonies and 
protectorates. 

Published works originating in the U.S.A. are not protected in the British Empire 
unless published within fourteen days after the U.S.A. publication. There is how- 
ever a special war provision under which works first published in the U.S.A. after 
September 3, 1939, obtain protection in Great Britain if published here before 
the expiration of a year from the official termination of the war as from the date of 
such publication. The date of termination of the war for the purposes of this 
provision has not yet (September 1946) been fixed. Unpublished works of citizens 
of a residence in the U.S.A. are however protected in Great Britain until publication, 
and it is to be observed that publication does not include public performance (Section 
1 (3)) so that U.S.A. plays and films, which have not been published in the sense of 
issue of copies, enjoy protection here as unpublished works. 

HOW FAR BRITISH WORKS ARE PROTECTED ABROAD 

Works first published in the British Empire and unpublished works of British 
subjects are protected in all Convention countries (see above) though it should be 
noted that "first publication" in this case has not necessarily quite the same meaning 
in all countries. Some countries, e.g. the Netherlands, do not accept the mere issue 
of copies as constituting publication in a country and require that copies shall be 
issued from a distributing centre in the nature of a publishing house in the Country, 
and the fourteen days period is not universal. 

As regards other foreign countries, copyright can only be secured by complying 
with the formalities prescribed by the law of the Country. In the U.S.A. copyright 
is secured by registration and deposit of copies. Copyright cannot be acquired 
unless a "copyright reserved" notice is affixed to all copies sold whether in the U.S.A. 
or abroad. Application for registration must be made promptly or the right to 
protection is lost but an interim protection can be obtained which enables the 
position to be preserved pending publication in the U.S.A. Furthermore war 
legislation has increased the period of delay allowed for registration. Books or 
periodicals in the English language however cannot secure permanent protection 
in the U.S.A. unless an edition is printed in the U.S.A. from type set up there. 

In most South American countries, except Brazil (see above) copyright can only 
be secured by some form of local registration. 



THE COPYRIGHT ACT* 

IMPERIAL COPYRIGHT 

1. (1) Subject to the provisions of this Act, copyright shall subsist throughout the 
parts of His Majesty's dominions to which this Act extends for the term hereinafter 
mentioned in every original literary dramatic musical and artistic work, if 

(a) in the case of a published work, the work was first published within such parts of 

His Majesty's dominions as aforesaid; and 

(b) in the case of an unpublished work, the author was at the date of the making of 

the work a British subject or resident within such parts of His Majesty's 
dominions as aforesaid; 

but in no other works, except so far as the protection conferred by this Act is extended 
by Orders in Council thereunder relating to self-governing dominions to which this Act 
does not extend and to foreign countries. 

(2) For the purposes of this Act, "copyright" means the sole right to produce or 
reproduce the work or any substantial part thereof in any material form whatsoever, to 
perform, or in the case of a lecture to deliver, the work or any substantial part thereof 
in public; if the work is unpublished, to publish the work or any substantial part 
thereof; and shall include the sole right, 

(a) to produce, reproduce, perform, or publish any translation of the work; 

(b) in the case of a dramatic work, to convert it into a novel or other non-dramatic 

work; 

(c) in the case of a novel or other non-dramatic work, or of an artistic work, to 

convert it into a dramatic work, by way of performance in public or otherwise; 

(d) in the case of a literary, dramatic, or musical work, to make any record, per- 

forated roll, cinematograph film, or other contrivance by means of which the 
work may be mechanically performed or delivered, 

and to authorise any such facts as aforesaid. 

(3) For the purposes of this Act, publication, in relation to any work, means the issue 
of copies of the work to the public, and does not include the performance in public of 
a dramatic or musical work, the delivery in public of a lecture, the exhibition in public 
of an artistic work, or the construction of an architectural work of art, but, for the 
purposes of this provision, the issue of photographs and engravings of works of 
sculpture and architectural works of art shall not be deemed to be publication of such 
works. 

INFRINGEMENT OF COPYRIGHT 

2. (1) Copyright in a work shall be deemed to be infringed by any person who, 
without the consent of the owner of the copyright, does anything the sole right to do 
which is by this Act conferred on the owner of the copyright: Provided that the 
following acts shall not constitute an infringement of copyright: 

(i) Any fair dealing with any work for the purposes of private study, research 
criticism, review, or newspaper summary : 

(ii) Where the author of an artistic work is not the owner of the copyright therein, 
the use by the author of any mould, cast, sketch, plan, model, or study made 
by him for the purpose of the work, provided that he does not thereby repeat 
or imitate the main design of that work: 

(iii) The making or publishing of paintings, drawings, engravings, or photographs of 
a work of sculpture or artistic craftsmanship, if permanently situate in a public 
place or building, or the making or publishing of paintings, drawings, en- 
gravings, or photographs (which are not in the nature of architectural drawings 
or plans) of any architectural work of art: 

* Reproduced by permission of The Controller, H.M. Stationery Office. 



286 THE WRITERS' AND ARTISTS' YEAR BOOK 

(iv) The publication in a collection, mainly composed of non-copyright matter, bona 
fide intended for the use of schools, and so described in the title and in any 
advertisements issued by the publisher, of short passages from published 
literary works not themselves published for the use of schools in which copy- 
right subsists: Provided that not more than two of such passages from works 
by the same author are published by the same publisher within five years, and 
that the source from which such passages are taken is acknowledged: 

(v) The publication in a newspaper of a report of a lecture delivered in public, 
unless the report is prohibited by conspicuous written or printed notice affixed 
before and maintained during the lecture at or about the main entrance of the 
building in which the lecture is given, and, except whilst the building is being 
used for public worship, in a position near the lecturer; but nothing in this 
paragraph shall affect the provisions in paragraph (i) as to newspaper summaries : 

(vi) The reading or recitation in public by one person of any reasonable extract from 
any published work. 

(2) Copyright in a work shall also be deemed to be infringed by any person who 

(a) sells or lets for hire, or by way of trade exposes or offers for sale or hire; or 
(6) distributes either for the purposes of trade or to such an extent as to affect 
prejudicially the owner of the copyright; or 

(c) by way of trade exhibits in public; or 

(d) imports for sale or hire into any part of His Majesty's dominions to which this Act 

extends, 

any work which to his knowledge infringes copyright or would infringe copyright if it 
had been made within the part of His Majesty's dominions in or into which the sale or 
hiring, exposure, offering for sale or hire, distribution, exhibition, or importation took 
place. 

(3) Copyright in a work shall also be deemed to be infringed by any person who for 
his private profit permits a theatre or other place of entertainment to be used for the 
performance in public of the work without the consent of the owner of the copyright, 
unless he was not aware, and had no reasonable ground for suspecting, that the per- 
formance would be an infringement of copyright. 

DURATION OF COPYRIGHT 

3. The term for which copyright shall subsist shall, except as otherwise expressly 
provided by this Act, be the life of the author and a period of fifty years after his death : 

Provided that at any time after the expiration of twenty-five years, or in the case of 
a work in which copyright subsists at the passing of this Act thirty years, from the death 
of the author of a published work, copyright in the work shall not be deemed to be 
infringed by the reproduction of the work for sale if the person reproducing the work 
proves that he has given the prescribed notice in writing of his intention to reproduce 
the work; and that he has paid in the prescribed manner to, or for the benefit of, the 
owner of the copyright royalties in respect of all copies of the work sold by him cal- 
culated at the rate of ten per cent on the price at which he publishes the work; 
and, for the purposes of this proviso, the Board of Trade may make regulations pre- 
scribing the mode in which notices are to be given, and the particulars to be given in 
such notices, and the mode, time, and frequency of the payment of royalties, including 
(if they think fit) regulations requiring payment in advance or otherwise securing the 
payment of royalties. 

COMPULSORY LICENCES 

4. If at any time after the death of the author of a literary, dramatic, or musical work 
which has been published or performed in public a complaint is made to the Judicial 
Committee of the Privy Council that the owner of the copyright in the work has refused 
to republish or to allow the republication of the work or has refused to allow the per- 
formance in public of the work, and that by reason of such refusal the work is withheld 
from the public, the owner of the copyright may be ordered to grant a licence to 
reproduce the work or perform the work in public, as the case may be, on such terms 
and subject to such conditions as the Judicial Committee may think fit. 

OWNERSHIP OF COPYRIGHT, &c. 

5. (1) Subject to the provisions of this Act, the author of a work shall be the first 
owner or the copyright therein: 
Provided that 



THE COPYRIGHT ACT 287 

(a) where, in the case of an engraving, photograph, or portrait, the plate or other 
original was ordered by some other person and was made for valuable con- 
sideration in pursuance of that order, then, in the absence of any agreement 
to the contrary, the person by whom such plate or other original was ordered 
shall be the first owner of the copyright; and 

(6) where the author was in the employment of some other person under a contract 
of service or apprenticeship and the work was made in the course of his 
employment by that person, the person by whom the author was employed 
shall, in the absence of any agreement to the contrary, be the first owner of 
the copyright, but where the work is an article or other contribution to a 
newspaper, magazine, or similar periodical, there shall, in the absence of any 
agreement to the contrary, be deemed to be reserved to the author a right to 
restrain the publication of the work, otherwise than as part of a newspaper, 
magazine, or similar periodical. 

(2) The owner of the copyright in any work may assign the right, either wholly or 
partially, and either generally or subject to limitations to the United Kingdom or any 
self-governing dominion or other part of His Majesty's dominions to which this Act 
extends, and either for tjie whole term of the copyright or for any part thereof, and 
may grant any interest in the right by licence, but no such assignment or grant shall be 
valid unless it is in writing signed by the owner of the right in respect of which the 
assignment or grant is made, or by his duly authorised agent: 

Provided that, where the author of a work is the first owner of the copyright therein, 
no assignment of the copyright, and no grant of any interest therein, made by him 
(otherwise than by will) after the passing of this Act, shall be operative to vest in the 
assignee or grantee any rights with respect to the copyright in the work beyond the 
expiration of twenty-five years from the death of the author, and in the reversionary interest 
in the copyright expectant on the termination of that period shall, on the death of the 
author, notwithstanding any agreement to the contrary, devolve on his legal personal 
representatives as part of his estate, and any agreement entered into by him as to the 
disposition of such reversionary interest shall be null and void, but nothing in this 
proviso shall be construed as applying to the assignment of the copyright in a collective 
work or a licence to publish a work or part of a work as part of a collective work. 

(3) Where, under any partial assignment of copyright, the assignee becomes entitled 
to any right comprised in copyright, the assignee as respects the right so assigned, and 
the assignor as respects the rights not assigned, shall be treated for the purposes of this 
Act as the owner of the copyright, and the provisions of this Act shall have effect 
accordingly. 

CIVIL REMEDIES FOR INFRINGEMENT
